ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Three New Mexico teenagers accused of beating two homeless men to death with cinderblocks will stand trial in October.

KOB-TV reports (http://goo.gl/qquXSz) the case against the teens on first-degree murder will begin on Oct. 19.

In July, Albuquerque police arrested 18-year-old Alex Rios, a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old in the killings of 44-year-old Allison Gorman and 46-year-old Kee Thompson. Their bodies were discovered in a vacant lot.

The three have pleaded not guilty. The Associated Press is not identifying the two younger defendants because of their ages.

The victims were Native American, but police have said there’s no indication the crime was racially motivated.
